Construction of Liberia Football Association LFA’s headquarters on the Samuel Kanyon Doe (SKD) Boulevard in Liberia is set to kick-off soon. An architectural design by CESAF-Liberia Limited for the US $1.4m project has been approved by the executive committee.
LFA President Mustapha Raji and CESAF manager Diego Pol signed the agreement on 29th January 2020 to build its headquarters, which should have lasted for 20 months but was severely obstructed by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. LFA Vice President Wilmot Smith, who was acting president, inspected preparatory works on November 19, 2020, which will pave the way for an elaborate ground breaking ceremony.
In March 2017, CESAF-Liberia participated in a tender for the design and construction of the LFA future headquarters with funds from FIFA. CESAF, which won the bid over a month later, but had to wait to formally sign the contract due to the LFA electoral process and funding procedures put in place by FIFA.
The project involves the construction of a new multi three-storey building; on the ground floor, a sumptuous entrance and a very spacious conference room with the first and second floors entirely dedicated to offices.
The building has been designed in total compliance with international regulations on “demolition of architectural barriers” with access to disabled people guaranteed in all rooms as well as adequate toilet facilities.
